My 2cent suggestion is to use only one configuration tool for wifi.
If you prefer the kde4 one, once correctly installed and setup it should work even in TDE.
If you want to use TDE network manager, I recommend to disable/remove the KDE4 one.
Personally I use Wicd since a long time ago (when the time I moved away from KDE4 and before I discovered TDE quite some
time later on) and have no problems with it. Obviously I do not run TDE network manager together.
If you try to run 2 network managers at the same time I would not be surprised if you run into problems.
